REVIEWS

"Alexander Chance, making his stage debut as Oberon, is also in lustrous voice, and sounding on his enchanting first appearance like a young James Bowman. Vocally superb, Chance sings with wonderfully clean projection, clear-as-a-bell diction and faultless intonation in the sinuous lines of ‘I know a bank’.

David Truslove, Opera Today, 4th July 2021

"Alexander Chance and Samantha Clarke glitter as supernatural Oberon and Tytania."

Richard Fairman, Financial Times, 29th June 2021

"His Oberon was, from the moment he first appeared, a wondrous creation, tall, slim, mesmeric in (his) use of stillness, hauntingly beautiful in the arias and confident in the complexities of Britten's vocal writing."

Robert Hugill, Planet Hugill, 29th June 2021

"Oberon and Tytania were charismatic rulers of the spirit world, Alexander Chance’s pure countertenor and clear diction creating an authoritative “Captain of this fairy band”

Roy Westbrook, bachtrack, 28th June 2021

"Alexander Chance and Chris Darmanin are natural fits as Oberon and Puck"

Richard Morrison, The Times, 26th June 2021

 

“Countertenor Alexander Chance, who is the son of renowned singer Michael Chance and seems likely to rival his father’s reputation.”

Hugh Kerr, The Wee Review, 21st May 2019

 

“The young counter tenor Alex Chance already has all the qualities of precision and homogeneity that made his “Es ist Vollbracht” a moment of intense meditation”

Philippe Ramin, Bachtrack, 15th April 2019

 

“The tingly fresh sound of Alex Chance contrasted beautifully with the sonorous viola da gamba in ‘Es ist Vollbracht’”

Martin Toet, Place de l’Opera, 13th April 2019

“There was some very fine singing particularly from countertenor Alexander Chance and sopranos Caroline Weynants and Zsuzsi Töth…”

Christopher Corwin, Parterre Box, February 19th 2018

“…His interpretation of the beautiful aria O thou that Tellest good Tidings to Zion was masterful in all its aesthetic attributes. He left his mark of spontaneous and natural excellence…”

José Antonio Cantón, Comunidad Valenciana, 23rd December 2017

 

“…the heavenly countertenor Alexander Chance”

César López Rosell, El Periódico, 28th December 2017

 

“Alexander Chance, counter-tenor, gave a very sensitive performance with total clarity and perfect diction especially in the 6/8 lilt of “O thou that Tellest good tidings to Sion” and in his searingly moving “He was Despised.”

Lark Reviews, March 13th 2016
